Jeune mariée: Journal, 1957-1962 is the title of Catherine Robbe-Grillet's diaries of her early married days with author Alain Robbe-Grillet. The diaries shed light on Grillet's work and his recurring interest in sadomasochism.

In parts the diaries are just as explicit as The Sexual Life of Catherine M., yet the French press has received the diaries favourably: "For the Robbe-Grillets, intelligence is a shared virtue," concluded Liberation. Le Monde hailed "the erotic connivance of an original couple".

The diaries were published by Fayard in 2004, ISBN 2213620148.

According to the diaries Robbe-Grillet was impotent and preoccupied with sadistic fantasies. He wanted her to sign a contract to become his sex slave. "He passionately loves beating, biting, hurting," she notes. They made an arrangement whereby she could have sex with his best friend and publisher, Jérôme Lindon, of Les Éditions de Minuit, under certain precise conditions.
